Talib Kweli Releases Free Album 'F--- the Money'
Just a month after releasing Train of Thought: Lost Lyrics, Rare Releases & Beautiful B-Sides Vol. 1, Talib Kweli has dropped another surprise album, F--- the Money.
The rapper revealed the new music on his website, kweliclub.com, where it’s available to be downloaded for free.
On Saturday, Aug. 15, he said that it had already been downloaded a million times. "Yall love free shit," he tweeted.
"People don't buy music, they'd rather stream and pay money to streaming companies," Kweli said of the free release on an Overtime segment during an appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher. "It's convenient. As horrible as it is, it's my responsibility to do something about it. It's not on the consumer to do something about the new business model."
"I don't think it's fair, but that's how it is," he added.
